    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    yeah, blaming Carter for the economic problems his administration worked through is like blaming Bush for the economic downturn after 9-11.

    that's why.
    I guess working hard, investing well, saving your money and doing well is declaring war on people who

    1) spend far more than they can afford

    2) feel a need to go into massive credit card debt so they have the latest plasma tvs and state of the art phones

    Yeah I guess I declared war on the stupid kids by never missing class in HS (perfect attendance four years) getting a 4.0 and early admission into Yale.

    If you had actually looked at the charts, you'd see that they all list the source - none of the sources are Mother Jones.

    that wasn't true in the 20's. and in the 50's we were the only surviving economic super power. Reagan's administration was very good in terms of growth and clinton benefited from the dot com bubble

    and guess what-the times you speak of, the poor and middle class carried MORE of the total income tax burden
